    Tftp 232?

    ok... so I was looking at my boss's computer today, and it has this windows popup about how it needs to install/look at this file (TFTP232) but doesn't know what extension to use... It happens everytime the computer is started and I can't seem to find any information on it. A google search provided 1 hit about a possible backdoor trojan, and i know that tftp has something to do with networking but I didn't find anything too specfici about it. From the looks of it, I think its a virus of some sorts, I just haven't been able to figure out what it is exactly doing. I'm thinking a fresh format of the hd might be in order as the computer didn't have antivirus programs or any updated patches on windows xp. Anybody heard of this problem?

    Sounds like it was trying to access a speciifc port

    Run stuff like lavasoft adware and spybot search and destory, and if that doesn't solve it, nuke the OS and reformat/reinstall
